THE STORY:

Hello Crowdrise! “I’m in” for my second New York City Marathon, running with the nine other members of the Blue Engine team. Blue Engine works to ensure that all students from low-income communities are prepared to succeed in college. Currently, only 15% of low-income students who make it to college complete a bachelor’s degree in 5 years. To bridge this gap between what it means to be college eligible and what it means to be college ready, Blue Engine Teaching Assistants (BETAs) increase the academic rigor to which students are exposed by providing small-group instruction and high-dose tutoring to whole grades. In our first year, we increased the college-ready rate at our partner school by 187%.

For the past year, I have been working as a BETA in the 8thgrade Integrated Algebra classrooms at the Washington Heights Expeditionary Learning School (WHEELS) and could not be more excited to be raising money for such an amazing organization. The $5,000 that I am hoping to raise will provide daily tutoring to 4-6 students in Integrated Algebra for an entire school year. Please help me enhance the opportunities for these students by donating today!
